The place was immaculate, spacious, comfortable and above all so peaceful and tranquil. The cottage had everything we could possible need, plus more. We loved eating meals on the patio in the very large garden. We visited The Kings Head which was very nice and friendly too, on the seafood extravaganza night. The Hidden Hut was great for lunch, and we went with some friends we met whilst down here to the Sharks Fin which was a great night out too. We cooked quite a bit in the cottage, caught fish and seafood while out on our boat and came back to cook it. Bliss We have stayed in some beautiful places and travel regularly, we rarely stay at the same place twice. We both agreed are ready to book Ardevora Mill Cottage again for next year it was so amazing. A perfect place in a perfect location, need to make issue of the kayaks on site when we come again next year, just not enough time to do everything we wanted to do. 10/10 for everything.

It had all we needed and is in a lovely peaceful location. It is well located for the Lost Gardens of Heligan, Falmouth and lots of other places. It also a good place to walk from.

The steps leading Upto the front door are narrow making getting a good size suitcase difficult to get in . Parking is bad with no direct parking outside the house but if you don't arrive too late parking on the Main Street can be available. Strangely there is 2 downstairs toilets , one with shower and one with bath so if the loo is needed in the night it's a short walk downstairs !
